TOP QUALITY CARVING AND PIERCING
A HIGHLY DESIRABLE EARLY CHINESE FAN
Amazingly carved on both sides (front and back)
A COMPLETE WORK OF ART-SUCH FANTASTIC WORKMANSHIP WHICH MUST HAVE TAKEN AGES TO COMPLETE
A superbly carved and pierced Chinese fan that dates from the early 19th century
It was made purely for export to the West through the old China Trade at Canton.
The fan is decorated with the intricate and delicate piercing and carving typical of the workmanship of this period which obviously took exceptional skill and patience.
The one remaining guard is superbly carved in deep relief. The sticks are carved with figures in a formal garden setting with flowers, trees and pagodas/buildings etc. forming a continuous scene across all the sticks.
Above the ribbon area at the top of each stick there are individual panels with figures etc.
At the base the rivet has paste jewels inserted.
It has a mellow warm patina through age.
The fan measures approximately 7.5 inches long and is in great condition. It does however have most of the rear guardstick missing.
There are many images – please view them all.
I guarantee the authenticity of all my items and have extensive experience as a fan collector of well over 20 years. Please offer with confidence, I have a 100% response rating. If you have any reason for complaint I will offer a full refund (less shipping costs).
